A thin ring is crushed between two rigid planes. Due to plastic deformation the ring does not recover its original shape when the compression is removed. For an elastic-perfectly plastic flexural material, the ring undergoes two to five different stages. The mathematical problem is formulated and solved by exact numerical integration and accurate analytical approximations.
